Originally from Galway, in Western Ireland, Laoise grew up surrounded by traditional Irish music. The 21 writes ambitious, frank, and dreamy pop songs which cover topics such as relationships and heartbreak, often with dark and moody, introspective undertones. Laoise (pronounced Lee-sha) pulls apart her own experiences and examines them with a gritty and impressive honesty and bravery. Laoise’s latst song, ‘Bother’ tells the very familiar story of a love gone wrong – a relationship that’s turned sour and spiteful.
